HC Deb 26 March 1912 vol 36 cc401-2W

asked the Under-secretary of State for War whether new milk is a portion of the daily rations supplied to the ordinary soldier in barracks, and how much is allowed per day to each; and whether he will state how much new milk has been supplied to the soldiers quartered at Ebrington barracks, Londonderry, from the 1st November, 1911, to the present date; and who is the contractor?


Milk does not form part of the authorised ration, but is provided out of the messing money under arrangements made by the commanding officers of units. There is no information, therefore, at the War Office as regards the rest of the points raised in the question.
